Origin of Tiger Woods Nike Ad Audio Revealed

The origin of Earl Woods‘ speech to Tiger Woods in the Nike ad released Wednesday has been discovered!

Earl, the late father of Tiger, was actually speaking about his wife, Kultida, in the excerpt used in the Nike spot. The interview with Earl took place in 2004 and was used in Tiger: The Authorized DVD Collection, according to ABC News.

In the clip, Earl‘s full quote is, “Authoritarian. Yea, Tida is very authoritative. She is very definitive. ‘Yes’ and ‘No.’ I am more prone to be inquisitive, to promote discussion. I want to find out what your thinking was, I want to find out what your feelings are and did you learn anything? So we were two different types but we co-existed pretty well.”

Tiger Woods: New Nike Ad Revealed (VIDEO)

A somber Tiger Woods appears in a new ad for Nike, out today.

In the spot (shot at his home course in Orlando), Tiger‘s late father, Earl, speaks to his son, saying, “Tiger, I am more prone to be inquisitive, to promote discussion. I want to find out what your thinking was. I want to find out what your feelings are. And did you learn anything?”

“We support Tiger and his family as he returns to competitive golf,” Nike spokesman Derek Kent said. “The ad addresses his time away from the game using the powerful words of his father.”

The ad debuted Wednesday at 6PM ET on ESPN and The Golf Channel.

Nike is one of the few corporate sponsors to stay with Tiger since his sex scandal. Companies like Gatorade, Proctor & Gamble, AT&T and Accenture pulled out of their endorsement deals.

Tiger Woods Returns To Golf at The Masters

Tiger Woods will make his official return to golf April 8 at The Masters.

“The Masters is where I won my first major and I view this tournament with great respect,” the 34-year-old golfer said in a statement (via USA Today).

“After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I’m ready to start my season at Augusta. The major championships have always been a special focus in my career and, as a professional, I think Augusta is where I need to be, even though it’s been a while since I last played.”

“I have undergone almost two months of inpatient therapy and I am continuing my treatment,” Tiger continued. “Although I’m returning to competition, I still have a lot of work to do in my personal life.”

“When I finally got into a position to think about competitive golf again, it became apparent to me that The Masters would be the earliest I could play.”

Gatorade Ends Tiger Woods Deal

Tiger Woods has lost yet another endorsement deal.

“We no longer see a role for Tiger in our marketing efforts and have ended our relationship,” Gatorade spokeswoman Jennifer Schmit said. “However, our partnership with the Tiger Woods Foundation will continue. We wish him all the best.”

Following AT&T and Accenture last year, Gatorade is the third company to part ways with Tiger since his personal life made headlines. Endorsement contracts with Nike, EA Sports, NetJets, Upper Deck and TLC Vision are all still active.
